If interested here are some Period Signs for you to make use of on your model structures:
I am slowly cleaning up more and more period signage that I find online for my own personal use and I thought I might share with the group.
HINT: Print on thin (cheap) typing paper and apply with thinned white glue or Future Floor Wax to simulate a painted on wall sign. BUT: Print on photo quality paper to simulate an old enameled metal sign.
I could. Possible as the days get longer and the sun gets higher. I visit that building fairly often. I want to buy it to turn into a bike shop - free air gets 'em in, then they smell the chili… One Saturday four bikes per minute rode past this intersection. But alas the wife would rather be riding on Saturdays than watching others ride.
Which reminds me, I don’t know if Indian ever did large painted ads, but that would be cool as hell.
Bravo ~ It would be super if you could shoot that Dr. Pepper sign at the “other end of the day” so the sun is directly on it and without the tree shadows - however, I COULD still work from this one. Either one is going to be a bit of a bear to clean up, no matter what!
That top one is a metal one. I have it in my shop. Possible too busy for a painted ad. I’m thinking just Indian Motorcycle and the Chief’s profile that’s in the upper left. I’m sure something similar must have been done back in the day when they were competing with H-D.
